Spark (www.sparkprogram.org) is an award winning, growing youth apprenticeship program. Spark works to reduce the high-school dropout rate with a unique apprenticeship program, focused on at-risk middle-school students in high need communities. In partnership with district and charter schools, Spark creates one-on-one apprenticeships in real workplaces, where youth explore careers and develop the skills and motivation to succeed academically.
Spark was awarded the prestigious Draper Richards Fellowship in 2008, given to five early-stage non- profits from around the world with the highest potential for "broad social impact." In January 2010, Spark won the Ashoka Fellowship, one of the top honors for social innovation worldwide. Spark is building a foundation for national scale. Spark's programs have been operating in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2005, Los Angeles since January 2010, and Chicago since August 2011. Spark launched in Philadelphia in the spring of 2013 in partnership with the Wharton Social Impact Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania.
